Remember that time Google fixed Android fragmentation? Well, even if you think it's not that bad at this point - that's fair - it's interesting to see just how much diversity there is when it comes to Android.

In particular, they look at device fragmentation, brand fragmentation, OS fragmentation, fragmentation vs. GDP/capita, iOS comparisons, sensor fragmentation, and screen size fragmentation.

It's a pretty thorough analysis, which each of the of the visualizations providing a bit of slick interactivity. For example, something like this:
